I send a picture taken on a nice warm day at Newbury on 28 June 1986 which shows 47606 ‘Odin’ just arrived with a van train ,it uncoupled, picked up the van you can just see in the bay then continued to Paddington,another activity long gone. The old DMU superseded by Turbos which have been replaced by 387s under the wires. How quickly things change.
All the best, Michael.
Possibly Andrew's photo was taken on Bank Holiday Monday 31st May 2004. According to Six Bells Junction Pathfinder's 'Cornubian' used 67030 on the outward leg (Ealing Broadway-Penzance) with steam locos 5029 & 5051 working the return as far as Exeter St Davids where 67030 took over, presumably having run light ahead of the tour. See SBJ for full details.
